Shocked to hear of his passing after short illness,
ripping through the Aussies in 81 one of the great sporting memories a true English cricketing icon

Rip big man

Great memories of skiving off school to watch him playing for England in the 70s.

It must have been a formidable sight for the batsman when he was coming in on that long run up.

Yes, very sad news. Reminds me of long hot summers and the curtains drawn waiting for 10:50am. RIP.
